By now, it’s well known that while presumed GOP nominee Mitt Romney says he wants to “get rid of Planned Parenthood” and curtail women’s rights, he was once a staunch defender of the right to choose. He even attended a fundraiser for Planned Parenthood in 1994, to whom his wife once wrote for $150.

Now, Buzz Feed digs up a photo of Romney at another fundraiser for a pro-choice group, this one of Romney at the Massachusetts Women’s Political Caucus (MWPC) awards ceremony in 1995:

The MWPC is the state affiliate of the National Women’s Political Caucus, which was founded by feminist Gloria Steinem. The group lists “[r]eproductive freedoms and the right to choice” as one of its top priorities and “prides itself in increasing the number of pro-choice women elected and appointed into office every year.”
